The White Rose Project is led by Dr Alex Lloyd. Alex is a Fellow by Special Election in German Studies at St Edmund Hall, and Lecturer in German at Magdalen College and Trinity College, University of Oxford. She teaches German language and literature from the mid-eighteenth to the twenty-first century, translation between German and English, and film studies. Her main research interests lie in twentieth-century literature and visual culture, and her book Childhood, Memory, and the Nation: Young Lives under Nazism in Contemporary German Culture, will be published in Legenda’s Germanic Literatures series in 2020.
In 2019 Alex was awarded a Knowledge Exchange Fellowship at The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) to support a collaboration with the Munich-based Weiße Rose Stiftung (White Rose Foundation). She also received a Teaching Excellence Award from the university’s Humanities Division for her work with students on the White Rose Translation Project.
